Kyle's Birthday

Good evening Bloggers,

Tonight a reasonably quick post to share with you the card I put together this afternoon.  A good friend of mine's son is having a birthday soon and I was asked if I could make a card for him.

Some of his posts on Facebook recently show that he has developed a keen interest in Graffiti art recently, so I used this as my jumping off point.

A couple of notes on the products used.  Graffiti and Checker Plate stamps from Kaisercraft in the background, and the Tim Holtz Alterations Riveted Metal Set embossing folder.

To make Kyle's name I used some double sided sticker paper and my embossing powders.  I downloaded the free font, and then printed and cut out each section.  The background all in black as one piece, and then the individual letters.  I was really happy with the effect, super easy, just requires some patience for all the fussy cutting :o)  I stick the double sided sticker paper to white card to give it some substance, and then emboss and cut around each piece.  A simple and effective title that definitely fits in with the theme I was going for.

Thanks for looking

    This card is fantatic! I love how you created his name. Your colouring of this fun image is excellent, his mohawk reminds me of my friends son.
